I got Spike back in mid-April and they told me he was about 6 weeks old. That would make him about 4 months now. For the past month or so his pee has been leaving very hard white spots on the fleece in his cage. It's kind of gritty and really hard to wash out. I'm not sure if it's because he always pees in the same spots or if there's too much calcium in his diet. He's on Oxbow young guinea pig pellets and Timothy hay, and also has a small amount of a leafy green veggie (romaine, escorole, cilantro), a piece of carrot and a slice of red, yellow, or green pepper. He's been trying a few new veggies lately because my other guinea pig is a very picky eater so I've been looking for something he will eat. My Spike doesn't have that problem, he will eat anything lol. I also read that young piggies need more calcium as they grow but I feel like what Spike has going on isn't normal. I don't want to ignore it and he ends up with stones because I don't have the money for surgery. I just bought Oxbow adult guinea pig pellets for the lower calcium levels but I'm nervous to give it to him because he's not 6 months yet. I also ordered these urinary support tablets that had really good reviews. Any advice?
